Welcoming ALL Aspiring Entrepreneurs & Side Hustlers!!
Hi, I'm Jessica! I am the Owner of Jess A Little Shirt Shop. REAL QUICK - just a little info on who I am and why I've decided to make this blog coexist with my business:
Where do I start? I reside in the state of Tennessee. I'm a married woman and also a mom to two beautiful children. I'm proud to say that I'm a lover of God, a fan of His work and an encourager of people.
I've always been a creative little thing and honestly I think it's a trait that I've inherited from both my parents and grandparents. In fact, I've been crafting for many years but in May 2019 is when I officially decided to launch my Business and become an Entrepreneur! I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to financially benefit from the gift God gave me of being creative! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE being my own boss, working from the comfort of my own home, in my jammies and on MY own time! I remember when I only considered this to be a "side hustle" but now it's my full-time job and I have God to thank for that!
A milestone that I'll forever celebrate is how I made over $12,000 in my first six months of being in business! I was able to do that without the help of any Business Advancement Loans whatsoever and because I'm "self taught" with a lot my work, I didn't have to worry about spending extra money on special training and things like that. Now, that may not seem like a lot of money to some of you so let me explain where my excitement comes in at .. As a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), I made roughly $7,200 in six months on average without overtime. My first six months in entrepreneurship.. I made $4,800 MORE !!
I built Jess A Little Shirt Shop from the ground up or from scratch as some of you may call it. The success of my business did not happen overnight. In fact, I've worked very hard to get to where I am now and as time goes by my business just continues to blossom! God has been so good and He just continues opening doors for me. I also want to say that a lot of this wouldn't be possible without the love and support that so many of you continuously and consistently show me!
As a way to give back to my community of supporters, I've decided to host this blog with intentions of helping and encouraging those who aspire to have side hustles or become entrepreneurs.
Over the past few months, several of you have reached out for advice on how to get started on your journey of entrepreneurship. I've received numerous questions concerning the business side of things and then there's some who are just simply looking for direction and that's okay!
When I say this Blog is also for aspiring SIDE HUSTLERS, I mean that! Some of you already have a career or a job that you're pretty content with; you just need the extra income to help pay off some debt, put into savings, prepare for major holidays such as Christmas or even vacays .. I'm here to help you with that too!
In this Blog, you'll find a lot of VALUABLE & HELPFUL information! I'll also be sure to leave links every now and then that'll help you even more along the way. I'm not an expert but everything that I'll be sharing is exactly what I've applied to myself and the success of my own business.
Visit me here often because I'll be updating throughout the week quite a bit! Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me ramble! Thanks for your support and thanks for being a part of my journey!!
